Good points. There was a good piece on Frontline just last week on this subject. While a lot of plastic is being recycled, a whole lot more either can't be or isn't, largely because no one knows how to make a profit off of anything but discarded plastic bottles. A lot of the rest is being shipped to companies in Indonesia who thought they could profit. Turns out they can't, even with much lower labor costs. So there the stuff sits, piling up into mountains. It's a serious problem where there are no good short-term answers.
